‘You Have Truly Broken My Heart’: Sarah Palin’s Supporters Turn Against Her After Trump Endorsement

Published

Palin’s Facebook Page Explodes With Former Supporters Expressing Disappointment, Sadness, Anger

Sarah Palin officially endorsed GOP frontrunner Donald Trump this week. Late Friday afternoon the former, half-term Alaska governor posted a PEOPLE magazine “exclusive” to her Facebook page. “Enjoy some behind-the-scenes pictures of recent campaign stops that we’ve shared with People.com,” Palin wrote. “I told you it’s going to be a lot of fun Making America Great Again!”

Immediately, hundreds posted responses, and they were unusual for Palin’s 4.6 million Facebook supporters.

“Disappointed in you,” one former fan wrote. “You have always been my favorite but I don’t know how you can support Trump who has not demonstrated he is a conservative. In fact just the opposite. So another one of my heroes has bit the dust.”

“Feel like we were sold out. Thought that she would support a person of faith not a crook with no plan to fix anything,” wrote another.

“Always respected you, until now. Disappointed and sad.”

“Sarah, you have truly broken my heart….”

“Not following your posts anymore. Trump is not a conservative, so what does that say about you? I don’t know. Just looking for publicity, jumping on the bandwagon? No reason to listen to a thing you say.”

Of course, not all were negative, and many were even positive. But unlike most of the comments on most of Palin’s posts, these emotion-filled messages portray a large contingent who feel personally hurt and betrayed.

Trump Is ‘Untethered to Reality’ and His Thanksgiving Rant Proves It: CNN’s Berman

Published

on

CNN host John Berman on Friday lit into President Donald Trump for going on an unhinged Thanksgiving rant about the 2020 election in which he once again falsely claimed that he won.

Berman in particular zeroed in on Trump’s seething anger at Reuters White House correspondent Jeff Mason, who asked the president on Thursday if he’d concede that he lost the election.

“He was yelling at Jeff Mason, who is the most mild-mannered reporter in America, who was asking one of the most obvious questions in America, which is, ‘Will you concede the race that you lost?’” Berman said. “I think it gave a window into where the president is this morning and how untethered to reality he may be.”

Guest Ron Brownstein shared Berman’s assessment and talked about the harm it’s doing to the United States.

“[He’s] doing real damage,” Brownstein said. “You’ve seen the polling: Three-quarters of Republicans now believe the election was stolen. We’ve never seen anything like this, an effort by a president to systemically undermine the results of the election.”

Trump Serves Up Paranoid Election Conspiracy Rant for Thanksgiving: ‘Flick of a Switch Can Change Course of History’

Published

on

President Donald Trump on Thanksgiving broke weeks of refusing to answer questions from reporters, and focusing his anger on Georgia called its Republican Secretary of State “an enemy of the people” while brewing up an insane new conspiracy theory.

After praising GOP Senators in two run-off elections fighting to keep their seats, Trump said he told Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue, “you have a fraudulent system.”

“You have a system where the flick of a switch or the putting in of a new chip can change the course of history.”

He also falsely claimed voting rights advocate and former Georgia House Minority Leader Stacey Abrams had illegally “harvested” 850,000 ballots. In reality, Abrams says 750,000 Georgia voters have requested absentee ballots.

‘No I Can’t Say That’: Trump Says He Will Not Concede – but Will Exit White House if Electoral College Makes ‘Mistake’

Published

on

President Donald Trump used the occasion of Thanksgiving, weeks after Election Day, to declare he will not concede.

Speaking to reporters after calling troops overseas – at 1:16 AM their time, several hours later than scheduled – the President was asked if he will finally concede.

“No I can’t say that at all,” Trump replied, the first time he’s taken questions from reporters in weeks.

President-elect Joe Biden has 306 Electoral College votes, against Trump’s 232.

He also said the Electoral College members will have made a “mistake” if they do not declare him the winner of the 2020 presidential election, as Bloomberg’s Jennifer Jacobs reports.

But he also said he would leave the White House if Biden is the official winner. (Trump frequently denies making remarks he has made.)

Trump, however, is not planning on believing the results.

“I don’t know what is going to happen. I know one thing, Joe Biden did not get 80 million votes,” he added.
